my mother was a mountain, my father was the sea
she split him into fountains, he cleft her into valleys
my mother was an icy wind, my father a barren land
he wanted a warmer woman, she needed a better man

so where do you go, in twenty years you’re gone
where do you go when you forgot the sum of your fears is not all you are

my mother was a dry year, my father nearly drowned
in whiskey, rum and beer, trying to quiet his nomadic heart down
cause my mother was a boulder on my father’s desolate plain
and their love only grew colder cause she loved him best in chains

my mother was cumulonimbus, my father was the sky
she thundered him three children with lightning in our eyes
i inherited the heart of my father, and I got my mother’s fright
i’ll always be a wanderer so I’ll never get left behind
